One of the unique ways that Bernardo Wills Architects celebrates our team is how we recognize work anniversaries. Each year we make a donation in their name to a charity of each employee’s choice – $25 for every year they have been with Bernardo Wills. Since the program began in 2018, we have donated more than $12,000 to local charities such as Meals on Wheels Spokane, Vanessa Behan Crisis Nursery, SCRAPS, SNAP, Union Gospel Mission, Second Harvest Inland Northwest, and Transitions. We love getting a glimpse into what matters to each team member and making our community better at the same time.
#WorksiteWednesday Baker Construction & Development, Inc. crews are busy in Kendall Yards at the West of Jefferson mixed-use site. Windows are being installed, and you can see the façade begin to take shape. The canopies and metal decks are staged onsite and ready for install.
We were so honored to take AIA Spokane on a tour of the Ice Age Floods Playground last week. For many of us, this was one of our first in-person events with fellow design professionals in Spokane. It was the perfect day for an outdoor event. Huge thanks to AIA Spokane for including this project in their Architecture Month programming!
One of our landscape architects got to visit the University of Idaho last week and see our 7th Street Improvement project. It is still awaiting final completion but looked great with the plum trees in bloom. The goal of this project was to create a pedestrian mall here on 7th Street, which is the beginning of campus tours, and match the branding and character of the rest of the campus. Go, Vandals!
The windows are going in at the West of Jefferson mixed-use building in Kendall Yards. This project is moving right along, thanks to Baker Construction & Development, Inc.
The countdown to the Ice Age Floods Playground has begun. Crews are working hard for the upcoming opening in only a few weeks. Here is a video sneak peek, we can’t wait for our families and fellow Spokanites to enjoy this site. What element looks the most fun to you? Share with your climbers, skaters, basketballers, and kids of all ages!
#WorksiteWednesday You may have noticed some site work at Division & Francis in Spokane. We are proud to announce another project with @WSECU and @YGConstruction – a new branch to better serve their members in North Spokane. They hope for an October 2021 opening. #GoTeam
Dell Hatch, ASLA, Landscape Architect and Principal at Bernardo Wills Architects, is currently leading a hand-drawing and sketching workshop for some of his colleagues at Bernardo Wills. He is a talented and accomplished illustrator, and his sessions are fostering an environment of artistry and mentorship. In this time-lapse, you can see Dell set up an elevation including a residence, dock, car, boat, and people.
Happy Administrative Professionals Day (4/21/21) to the admins here at Bernardo Wills Architects and throughout the Spokane business community. We know that we would be lost without our support staff, and today with honor their professionalism, thoughtfulness, and attentiveness.
